Tributee: Bob Dylan.
Liner Note Author: Stefanie Reines.
Around the time that director Martin Scorsese's Bob Dylan documentary, NO DIRECTION HOME, was unveiled in 2005, Drive-Thru Records released a two-disc tribute to the iconic singer/songwriter. Although the indie label features a stable of punk-pop artists, many tracks here are stripped-down and unplugged, with highlights coming from As Tall As Lions (who offer up an appropriately melancholy take on "Girl of the North Country") and RX Bandits (who contribute a dreamy version of "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll").
